Duistermars represents more than 60 Rotary Clubs in the Inland Empire. Each of these sponsors multiple projects to benefit their own and other communities. His visit serves to highlight one of the benefits of Rotary membership: a member traveling anywhere in the world can find a Rotary Club at which he or she will be welcomed with open arms.
